Composer and Musician of the Month bulletin boards are a great way to introduce new music to your students while incorporating music history and listening activities, and act as a supplement to your lessons. They look great as décor and can be changed as often as needed to reflect your curriculum or performance pieces.

Why is ‘Musician’ instead of ‘Composer’ used?
This is a question I struggled with for a while. I wanted to stay as close to my old style as possible, but I also wanted to be accurate and have my COTM and MOTM packs to make as much sense as possible as a collective. Although several of the African American MOTMs are also composers, I decided to list them as MOTMs because of their development of Jazz genres through performance. If through my research I discovered that a particular person did a lot of performance, they were labeled as a MOTM rather than a COTM.

SUGGESTED MONTH(S): February, August

*The blank pages are not editable, but the JPEG versions can be brought into Word or PowerPoint for you to add your own information if there is something else you would like to add.

Both PDFs and JPEGs available for all pages.
SafeShareTV takes YouTube links and eliminates the distractions of related videos, autoplay, and best of all, NO ADS! This is why some sort of safe-viewer is recommended in the classroom. I have also made sure to edit the videos to crop out any unnecessary beginning time (like applause) so you get right to the music after clicking the link.

Although these bulletin board sets are mainly used for decoration, many teachers like to use them as digital instruction material on the projector or SMARTboard. When opening the Famous Compositions or Famous Performances pages, click any of the music titles to be taken to a video of the piece.

Please make sure your district does not block YouTube or SafeShareTV before attempting to access the video links in your classroom. Please note that the download does not contain actual video and audio files. All videos are internet-based. Links are clickable in PDF files only and are found in the Famous Compositions or Famous Performances pages unless specified otherwise.

To see if your institution allows SafeShareTV, (from your institution's technology) click the link below to test the connection.

>>>>The Piano Guys Lacrimosa/Hello

If your institution happens to block SafeShareTV and you would like to still access the videos, SafeShareTV does have a download option available. To do this, you would still need to access the link from a location where SafeShareTV is not blocked.
Please note that not all Composer of the Month and Musician of the Month sets have a photo included with the package. I only use public domain images in my sets, so if a photo is not available to me, I will not include it within the file.

If I have a set you would like to purchase without a photo of a composer, you are more than welcome to use my blank PDF and JPEG files in Word, PowerPoint, or some other word or presentation software to insert a composer photo of your choice. (Personal/Educational use only, no Commercial)
Borderless printing is recommended if your printer has this capability. All images are high quality and look best when printed in best quality settings. Laminate the pages to have them lasting for years.

If you have trouble printing the PDF version of the files, please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe PDF Reader by clicking here.
